Chandrika Bajaj, Bachelor of Biomedicine (India)
"The lack of accessible healthcare and the need to act on climate change inspire me to work harder towards achieving my goal. The Bachelor of Biomedicine offers intensive learning and the ability to pick a breadth outside biomedical subjects."
Anita Esinu Afortudey, Master of Advanced Nursing
"I chose the Master of Advanced Nursing to improve my knowledge and skills in a specific field of nursing (paediatrics). This is to enable me to provide evidence-based care and undertake innovations within the clinical area of paediatrics and beyond. I also hope to improve on my leadership skills and pursue leadership roles after the course."
Thomas Jones, Master of Advanced Nursing Practice (Nurse Practitioner)
"I’m really interested in service improvement and policy and guideline development, so I felt this course would equip me with both the theoretical underpinning and the practical skills needed to provide advanced nursing practice and leadership."
Sowmya Jonnagadla, Master of Genetic Counselling (India)
"...[With the Master of Genetic Counselling], I am able to utilise my technical background in genetics and science. I really like how well-structured my course and subjects are. The curriculum is very innovative and the tutorials are very interactive."

"The Master of Public Health provides ample time to understand and apply concepts, network and make lifelong friends. The dynamic nature of the course structure and the wide variety of electives and specialisations to choose from appeal a lot to me."
Jomy Jose, Master of Public Health (India)
"Having already explore the treatment aspect of health during my undergraduate degree, I wanted to focus on the preventative aspect. Public health was an obvious choice as it had broad prospects both globally and in India."
Sherine Abraham, Master of Public Health & Bachelor of Biomedicine (India & Malaysia)
"The University of Melbourne offered exactly what I was looking for from a university experience: culture and dynamics. I was immersed in an academic haven, yet learning was holistic, which was pivotal in my academic pursuit."
Lindiwe Mlalzi, Master of Social Work
"I was attracted to the Master of Social Work because I want to work with families and make a difference in people's lives. It's a broad field and you can work in lots of different kinds of settings... I know I want to work with children and families, but I’m still open to where that might be. I’m excited to see what comes next."
Roshine Linus, Doctor of Dental Surgery & Bachelor of Biomedicine (Sri Lanka)

Ghanisht Juwaheer, Doctor of Medicine & Bachelor of Biomedicine (Honours) (Mauritius)
"Medical students are fully immersed at the hospital: going on ward rounds, talking to patients, learning from specialists… I like feeling like I’m fulfilling a purpose that I set out for myself – learning how to take care of myself and the many enriching friendships I’ve formed already."
